PristineTrails
About me:

We are a team of travel professionals with passion and commitment. Our team, from the proprietors to the travel consultant and stellar guides, has more than ten years experience in the Tanzanian tour industry. Pristine Trails Adventures and Safaris is a company wholly owned by Tanzanians who, after years of working for other established companies as guides and naturalists, sought out an independent approach to further support themselves and advance their professions. Our focus is organizing tours with an ethical approach, tours of inspiration and an enriching experience for the traveler, tours benefiting the indigenous people, wildlife & conservation efforts and Tanzania as a whole.

Our holidays are mainly tailor made and we cover the whole of Tanzania as a destination. Be it a wildlife safari to the country's 15 National Parks, a trekking adventure up peaks such as Mount Kilimanjaro, journeying to the chimpanzees in Mahale and Gombe National Parks, a walking safari with a Maasai tribesman in the Ngorongoro Crater Highlands, cultural tours or beach holidays, we have an experience for you! We maintain good relations with the accommodation facilities and can arrange for reservations at these places. Pristine Trails is your Tanzanian travel experience all under one roof. Pristine Trails is a proud member of the travel industry association of TATO (Tanzania Association of Tour Operators).

SENE
About me:

Summit Expeditions & Nomadic Experience (SENE) was founded in 1998 by mountain guide and ultra-runner Simon Mtuy.

KARIBU! WELCOME!

Tanzania is known worldwide for Kilimanjaro climbs, Serengeti wildlife, and the exotic island of Zanzibar. While these draw visitors to the country, our goal at Summit Expeditions & Nomadic Experience (SENE) is also to provide a rewarding personal experience that will be fondly remembered for a lifetime. We share the rare beauty and magic of Tanzania as expressed in its people, its land, its varied environments, and its vast array of flora, fauna, and bird-life. These are found not only in its famed national parks, but also in the villages, farms, and back roads of this extraordinary country. We aim for your adventure with us to be a holistic travel experience – broadening understanding and establishing bonds of friendship that last across distance, time, and culture. On all SENE adventures, whether Kilimanjaro climbs, wildlife safaris, bike tours, running trips, or foothills walks, we try to include time in Simon’s home village, Mbahe, in the foothills of Kilimanjaro, where the local people, the Chagga, warmly welcome guests. Visitors stay in the comfortable guest cottages he has built on his family farm, where one experiences the daily rhythms and vibrancy of African village life. Simon continues to carry out his vision of a sustainable, Tanzanian-owned and operated adventure travel business that promotes the beauty of Tanzania while contributing to the well-being of its people and environment.

Marangu Hotel
About me:

During the last decade of the nineteenth century in Tanzania, then the newly acquired German colony known as German East Africa, Martin Lany, a young tradesman from the country later known as Czechoslovakia, worked in the new Lutheran missions teaching building trades. In 1907 he bought land from chief Marealle of Marangu, brought his wife Emma from Mombasa by ox-wagon and together they established a coffee farm on the present site of Marangu Hotel, where the old farmhouse is now the hotel’s central building.

In the early 1930s, with declining world coffee prices, the Lanys began to take paying guests and, with the experience and knowledge they and their children had acquired of Mt Kilimanjaro, became one of the first outfitters for organised climbs.

In the last two decades hotels and mountain operators have multiplied dramatically, as have the number of overseas visitors.  In this increasingly competitive business environment Marangu Hotel is committed to maintaining and building upon a long established tradition of hospitality and comfort in the hotel, and professionalism and safety on the mountain.  Marangu Hotel is committed, too, to the development of the Marangu area in general, and its people, from whom come the hundreds of guides, porters and hotel workers, many of whom have worked with the hotel  for several decades, the most senior guides for over 40 years.
